Conor McGregor has released pictures of himself training ahead of his upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather next month.
It seems though that McGregor could do with a refresher course in the rules of boxing as he appears to be using an illegal move in the picture.
The photo shows the UFC fighter hovering over his opponent looking for a ground pound, a move that is completely illegal in boxing.

McGregor’s post is most likely another attempt by the MMA fighter to spook his opponent ahead of their fight on August 26 in Las Vegas.
The pair have been playing mind games since they met earlier this month, indulging in smack talk on and offline.
Mayweather for his part has claimed he’ll ‘knock McGregor the fuck out’ when they fight, meanwhile McGregor posted a picture of him knocking out Marcus Brimage during his UFC debut.

The boxing legend also teased McGregor by posting a picture of himself next to a table stacked with cash along with the prediction: “I’m gonna make a $hit t$n of money on August 26th.”
Floyd Mayweather retired from boxing aged 40 with a spotless record of 49 wins and zero losses, not that this has frightened McGregor who says he’s ready to shock the world and take down the former champion.
We’ll find out who can walk the walk on August 26, I guess.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
